Absolutely brilliant news

AFC Bournemouth’s David Brooks has confirmed that he is now cancer free and is planning on returning to action for the Championship side.

The 24-year-old was forced to take time away from football after he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin Lymphoma after he had initially withdrew from the Wales national team due to illness.

Brooks confirmed the news in a post on social media

However six months on from his diagnosis, Brooks has announced he has been given the all-clear in an emotional post to his social media.

He said: “It has been a few months since my last update and in that time I have thankfully completed my cancer treatment.

“I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the incredible medical staff for their amazing work and support throughout the process.

“Last week I met with my specialist having reviewed my final test results. I am delighted to say the treatment was successful and I can now say that I have been given the all clear and I am cancer free.

“Those words feel incredible to say and and I am so thankful for all your messages and good wishes, these really helped me through the tough times.”

Brooks is now focused on returning to first team action

Brooks then added: “I am so excited to start the journey back to full fitness and continuing my football career.

“The lads at Bournemouth have had an excellent season so far and I am looking forward to being back at The Vitality to cheer the team on as we head into the most important fixtures of the season.
